Second of three concrete pours happening at Bay pool

THE second of three concrete pours to resurface the 50m pool at Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre is taking place on Wednesday.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the great weather was helping the L&V Project Pools construction site.

"It's the second of three concrete pours…part of the ongoing project to resurface the pool," he said.

The $910,000 refurbishment of the Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre is due to be unveiled in late-November.

Work to revamp the 50m Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre pool began in late July, with early predictions that it would be finished by October.

But the need to replace the whole shell then pushed out the cost and completion date to November.

The project involved the removal of an old fibreglass surface, before the pool was relined with pebblecrete, white-tilled lane lines and underground pipes checked for faults.

As part of the revamp, administration, kiosk and junior play pool areas will also be improved.

The mayor said swimmers could continue to use the heated 25m pool while the works were under way.
